If it's new the controller needs to be synced. 1st plug your controller into the ps3 using the usb cable that came with the system. Then turn on the ps3 then turn on the controller.
Once the controller is recongnized hold the PS button and in the controller settings menu choose to turn off the controller.
Unplug the controller and it should be synced.

Controller won't link to the ps3 middle button just flashes as if its trying to connect. I have connected the tab coors but still nothing works.


Is the controller completely charged? If it is, then try this
1) Manually turn on your PS3 using the power button on the PS3.
2) Take your USB charger for your controller and plug it into the USB port. (Do NOT turn on your controller yet!)
3) Plug the controller into the charger that is connected to the PS3 USB port.
4) Now turn on your controller using the middle "PS" button.

The lights will flash for a few seconds, and that will sync your controller to that particular PS3 system. This might help :D

Ok so when i turn on my ps3 i see Connect the controller using a USB cable So connects but nothing that even tried to reset the pad, and also nothing that I bought 3 extra cable and an additional pad...


When you are charging your controller, have you tried pressing the ps button, (circular button in the middle) on your controller to synchronise controller to ps3. When charging are you seeing the red light flash to indicate charging?

Hope this helps.

My screen is frozen in updates. It tells me to press ps button to use my controller. What is this?


Its the very middle button on your playstation remote. If its saying press the ps3 button on your control its possible your ps3 is not frozen but your ps3 remote has just turned off..

Press the very centre button and check the lights on the top of the joypad. Are any lights lit solid? Once the light comes on solid the controller is active. If these do not light youll need to charge your ps3 remote with the usb cable that came with the ps3.

Also if your ps3 remote is lit for number 2, hold down the ps button, very middle for about 5seconds. Should have an option for reassign controllers, select that and put your controller to number 1.

Hope this helps

I can't use my wireless controllers on my PS3 unless their plugged in and charging. When I unplug them and push the PS3 button in the middle, all four lights just blink about 4 or 5 times and then turn...


plug in the controller before you turn on your ps3 then turn on the ps3 by the system. after the system starts press the ps button on the controller after it stops blinking and only one light is on unplug it. it should be linked together.

PS3 Controller wont turn on?


mine sometimes does that, just try pushing and holding it until the options come up on the screen, then turn off controller. Then try turning it back on. If that doesn't work, turn the ps3 off when its done charging, then unplug it while its off. This should work.

How to set up yobo controllers for ps3


I just bought a used one today and took me a little while to get it to work. Plug the USB receiver in and turn on the PS3. Press the Mode button and the lights will flash repeatedly at a fast rate (it's searching for the receiver). When it finds the USB receiver, the lights will still flash, but slower than before. When they're doing this, press the mode button again, and that should be all that you have to do. You can also plug the receiver in USB slot one, the charge cable in slot 2, and do the steps to set it up to make it work while charging. (I tried taking the receiver out while charging, and the lights started flashing again so I guess the USB receiver has to be in at all times)

Problems connecting a ps3 controller


Here's how to connect it tou your ps3. Mine works perfectly guys.

1. Turn your ps3 off without the USB key given with the controller
2. Make sure your controller is off.
3. Turn on the ps3
4. Turn on the controller
5. Press on the sync. button of your controller.
6. Plug the USB key into one of your ps3's port
7. When the light above your controller starting to flash slower, just pess the home button and your controller will be sync.

You can't turn on the ps3 with this controller. So turn it on manually than press the home button of the controller to turn the controller on.

If my post doesn't solve your problem, I really don't know how to solve it. I managed to connect mine so I hope it'll be the same for you!

Sorry for my bad English folks! You know... french people =S

Ps3 controller


I was having the same problem. Controller would only work when plugged in.
Solution: I shut down and unplugged the PS3 for several minutes. Plugged in the controller. Turned on the PS3 and let it boot up. Pressed the PS button on the controller and let it sink up. When I unplugged the controller it worked.
